Does anyone tire of Republican confessions as much as I? Here we have yet another prominent Republican announcing his adulterous relationship in South Carolina’s Mark Sanford. He is on the list with others who decry family values and confess they are sorry for their sins. What hypocrites they are.

 

To name a few, we have Nevada Senator John Ensign, a supposedly rising star of the Republican Party who also was a possible contender in the 2012 presidential election, admitting an adulterous affair. Arizona Senator John McCain, the GOP’s nomination for President, admitted to adulterous relationships while married to his first wife. New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani, adulterer, made an announcement to the press without telling his wife that he had decided to separate. Congressman and Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, serial monogamist and adulterer, is now on his third marriage. Congressman Bob Barr, who wrote the Defense of Marriage ACT, the man promoting family values, was committing adultery while his wife was recovering from breast cancer, has been married three times.

 

If it is not adultery, then it is other family values. Republican Rush Limbaugh committed adultery and is a serial monogamist. Bill O’Reilly enjoys phone sex. Ted Haggard, evangelical leader, likes gay sex. Senator Larry Craig likes gay bathroom fellatio.

 

Sarah Palin is probably jumping up and down with joy over this latest confession from Mark Sanford. Her chances for the 2012 presidential campaign just improved. The irony in this is that she should be greatly saddened by the news. This, I would suspect, will be her public persona on the topic while inside she can hardly contain herself.

 

The United States needs a good, strong Republican Party. A one party system just will not work. A strong GOP will help construct the checks and balances needed to progress in a steady, positive manner. Right now, it appears that the Republican Party is full of hypocrites who profess family values and then behave in opposition to that belief. While the GOP is recovering from their seemingly endless list of sins, the Democrats will need to gather forces to put forth bills that will get our economy back on track, secure rights for all citizens, and find solutions to our health care crisis.

After 26 years retiring from the Navy, then another 14 years as a psychotherapist retiring again, I have finally found time to be more active.
